AnswersThey can't. Although in certain situations a court will allow the age and parental consent requirements waived. Filing for a waiver is only possible in a few states and the decision is made at the discretion of the judge as to whether or not the request will be granted. In addition there are a few states that allow a minors to marry without parental consent or a court order; if certain circumstances exist and if the required documentation is presented at the time of the license application.In Georgia if you're pregnant you don't have to have your parents consent to get married just have to have proof of pregnancy!If you are a minor, either you don't get married, or you get your parents' permission.AnswerThe law will vary by state, but in most states you will need to file a petition for legal emancipation in order to make adult decisions.

In Nevada, you must have parental consent to get married if you are under 18. If you are 16, then you can get married in Nevada with parental consent. If you do have parental consent, then yes, the marriage would be considered legal in any other state. However, if you get married under false pretenses (fake id, forging consent signature from parent, etc) then the marriage is not legal in any state. It is illegal and invalid.

Where can minors marry without parents consent?

Pretty much nowhere in the US. Offhand I can't think of any state that allows those under the age of 18 to marry without parental consent, with two notable exceptions: In some states minors are allowed to marry despite not having parental consent if the female half of the couple is pregnant, and in some states a judge is allowed to give consent in lieu of parental consent (though in practice this tends to boil down to essentially the same thing, as a judge is unlikely to override parental authority without an extremely compelling reason, such as pregnancy).
